Between work and online classes, reading has been a challenge lately, but I am up for it. I finished Kele Moon's Crossing The Line and OMGOSH that was such a wonderful read. I loved Wyatt and Tabitha's book. The EPI was tooth jarring sweet, but I wouldn't have wanted it any other way. I so, so hope that Nova gets a book...pleaseeeeeee. I also finished Grace Burrowes, Douglas: Lord Of Heartache and it was also a wonderful read and a wonderful addition to the series. I read Laura Griffin's Exposed and while it was a really great read...I spend most of the book wondering how the h/h ever thought they were in love.

Working my way thru Jan Springer's Outlaw Lovers series.  I'm on #4, Tyler's Woman.  Oh, and I'm on #3 of Lauren Dane's Chase brothers series as well although I haven't picked that up in a few days since I'm sooooo into the Outlaw Lovers.  Can hardly put the ereader down enough to sleep.

I'm reading Under Locke by Mariana Zipata. It's a slow burn type of book but I'm enjoying it. If you look at this book, don't freak out that it's 900 pages. There is too much double spacing between paragraphs and that contributes to the length. It got on my nerves to begin with but I got used to it.

I read If I Stay by Gayle Forman. It was ok but I didn't love it like I thought I would.

Now reading Beg For Mercy by Jami Alden.

Tyler's Woman was like 850 pages, that was getting a little long for me but I finished it.  Now, onto Resistance which is only 198 pages.

I read Chasing Dreams by Nicole Edwards and Ten Tiny Breaths by K.A. Tucker. I also read Pamela Clare's novella, First Strike, the prequel to Striking Distance. Striking Distance was offered to me, and I requested it, through PBS. So I'm going to have to break down and read a physical book when it arrives. Now I'm reading Guilty Pleasures by Kitty Thomas.

Today is release day for a lot of great  new books, it was really hard to choose what to read out of the new ones that popped up on my nook this morning.  I started with KA's Kaleidoscope, and I love it so far.  My kids keep wanting me to pay attention to them, so I had to put the book down because it just wasn't happening.  I think Lorelei James' Bound is up next.

I finished Under Locke and I liked it. I'm finally reading Jagged by KA. I figured I should before the next one, even though they probably have nothing to do with each other.

Other than the ending, I didn't really like Guilty Pleasures much. Then I read Fallen Too Far by Abbi Glines, which I really liked. So next up is probably book 2, Never Too Far.

I finished Beg for Mercy by Jami Alden. Very good! I'm excited to get to the rest of the trilogy, but I want to finish up a couple others I have goin first. LOL

Kaleidoscope was good.  Short for a KA (which seems to be the new norm), but I really like it and Decker.  

Rebecca, I didn't like Jagged as much as I usually like KA's books.  Zara was too whiney for me.  

I'll be starting Bound after my dentist appointment this morning.  I would read at his office, but I've known him since I was a little girl, and I don't think our relationship is ready for that!

Lsressler, I loved that Abbi Glines series...so good!

I am catching up on Nina Bangs Castle of Dark Dreams series, and am about halfway through Wicked Whispers (Castle of Dark Dreams). Always funny, but this one isn't keeping my attention as well as the others have.

Too funny!  LOL

I'm juggling The Temptation of Lila and Ethan, and Stephen King's Doctor Sleep.

Well, shit!  I started and finished Bound after my dentist appointment. SO disappointed!  She's gone the serialized story route. It was not an HEA and is to be continued in the next book due out next month. I hate that do much I can't tell you.

Ok, so I had to read Lila and Ethan Forever and Always since it was so short.....now I'm on to Doctor Sleep.  LOL   I gotta stop juggling so many books. I'm confusing myself.

Thanks for the heads up on the new James. I HATE HATE HATE the serial story thing and refuse to support it through purchasing. Write a book. Not 5. That one now moves to the library only or LendMe pile.

I hate it when I don't know in advance that it is a serial. I wait until they're all out if it's something I want to read. To be honest, it usually isn't.

i finished Jagged and while I liked it, I felt it was a couple hundred pages too short. I'm happy she got a publisher but I hate what they're doing to her books.

I'm not sure what's next, I have so many good ones to choose from. Either Wicked Beat or Trying to Score by Toni Aleo.

I thought Jagged wrapped too much up in the epilogue...wasn't crazy about it. may have to just re-read the ones I liked in the other series
